Reasons to Get a Tankless Water Heater

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

If you’re tired of running out of hot water mid-shower or, simply, are frustrated with your energy bills, a tankless water heater could be the right next step for your home or office. Available for both residential and commercial use, tankless water heaters replace traditional, bulky hot water tanks and heaters, and come with a host of benefits including… 

Endless Hot Water On-Demand 

With a tankless water heater, every time you turn on the hot water, it’s available—and endless. You can run the washer, the dishwasher, and still get hot water out of the faucet, or have multiple showers running at the same time. 

While this may not have been an issue in the past, as your family—or your business—grows, so will your hot water needs. As the water flows through the tankless water heater’s pipes, it heats up, giving you all of the hot water you need every time you turn on the spigot, faucet or shower head—and that’s a big reason customers go tankless. 

Instant Hot Water

Not only does the hot water never end but you’ll never have to wait for it to heat up before hopping in the shower. With a traditional water heater it’s common to wait 10, 20, even 30 minutes for hot water to fully restore—and that can leave you killing time waiting for the hot water heater to fill up and heat up.

With a tankless water heater, water never sits in a tank. Instead It’s heated only when there’s a demand for it. There’s no delay then in when you tackle tasks around the home.

Stop Paying to Heat Water

Tankless water heaters can be more efficient than traditional hot water tanks. Hybrid tankless water heaters are also more efficient. First, there’s no need to keep the tank heating continuously to ensure it always offers enough hot water for your needs. 

Additionally, many offer lower CO2 emissions, which helps protect the environment. Some qualify for energy savings rebates or tax credits. Very simply, you’ll spend less heating water for your home with a tankless system, while ensuring you always have the hot water you need. 

Take Back Your Hot Water Heater’s Space

Most tankless systems are space-saving and need significantly less space than a traditional hot water heater. Whether your current tank is taking up valuable closet space, is tucked into a hard-to-reach attic, or sits in a prime area of the basement, you can get rid of it. Most tankless systems require a small, suitcase-size heater instead. Some are wall-mounted and can be installed into tight areas.

Stop Thinking About Your Water Heater

A tankless system is a model that can last for years. Though the average lifespan can differ from model-to-model, they can last up to twice as long as traditional water heaters—provided you work with a qualified technician to help choose and install your water heater.

At that time, it’s also important to check out the company and manufacturer warranties. If you’re tired of having to think about your hot water heater, wondering when it is going to finally give in, it’s time for a new model—and you may even want to invest in an ongoing maintenance plan to ensure your tankless system keeps running. 

Simple, Smart Systems 

Tankless water heaters aren’t complex or tough to use—a they’ll save you money from day one. Once installed, you can have complete confidence that your new system will continue to provide hot water to your home. Some offer even more smart tech that enables you to monitor the efficiency of the entire system using your WiFi connection.
